In many ways, Geoffrey is a typical fifteen-year-old. He lives in Connecticut with his parents, a brother and a puppy named Sparky. He attends high school where his favorite class is Creative Writing. He's on the staff of the literary magazine. He loves rock 'n' roll, wrestling, and hockey. He is obsessed with baseball, particularly the New York Yankees.
In other ways, he's probably not so typical. This book of poetry and inner thoughts of a teen provide a glimpse into the attitudes, loves, and wishes of a boy who is not a child, and not a man. Geoffrey has been influenced by many great people whom he has met in his life, too. The former Prime Minister of Israel, Shimon Peres, Senator Orrin Hatch, Yogi Berra, and the CEOs of major corporations worldwide.
The titles in this book are telling: "Looking Out of a Bus Window," "Solo," "Isn't It Not." Parents, girls, teachers and sports are all included here along with bursts of pride, anger, and questions of why things are as they are.
Geoffrey Dilenschneider is perhaps the wave of the future.
If you are a teen, a parent, or a teacher of any sort, you will love being a part of Geoffrey's intimate life. It opens doors and windows, and leaves you understanding just a little better.
